Deb is resilient and pragmatic, with a side of nurturing. Her can-do approach to life has both gotten her into and out of some unusual situations. She’s never the life of the party, but often someone others look to as a thought partner and advisor. 

Smart, open-minded, and a good collaborator, Deb is an expert at making sense of complex situations and finding ways to represent them in easy to understand ways. She finds the experience and perspective she’s gained the most rewarding part of getting older. She appreciates the simple things in life – fresh herbs, a good meal, and snuggling up to a good book at the end of the day. Deb’s most treasured aspect of her life is her friends and family. 

Deb’s advice to her younger self: “This too, you will survive and learn from.”
